Over the years I have been lucky to have handled, shot and hunted with a fair number of fine British sporting rifles. Only a very few examples from a minority of makers struck a chord as really outstanding examples. Since then, I have been making drawings and compiling detailed notes on dimensions, handling characteristics and balance preferred by myself and others. I also maintain a "library" of those original take-off stocks I like best, and those I don't to demonstrate why.
A copy of no one stock, this pattern range was cut from the block and is a blend of the features I personally found made the best British style stocks. There is not much new in stock making, so what I have concentrated on is identifying what various makers did, and why, and try to combine the very best features of the best examples into a quality pattern.
This stock design is a highly refined, puritan "stalking rifle" design. The trigger hand position is quite unique, and gives fine trigger and recoil control. Classy, subdued grip(top) and forend (underside) "ridge lines" give the hunter a subconscious reference point when handling and mounting the rifle, aiding assurity and repeatability when the pressure is on. The stock is designed to work exceedingly well with iron sights, and can be had with a range of drop, cast, grip length and other options. If you like the looks, it makes for a very fast-handling traditional rifle stock that is a fine basis for a custom rifle build. With suitable drop figures to give good fit, it can make for a nice scope/iron sight stock, or for dedicated scope use too.
Suits small game, medium game and dangerous game calibres equally when scaled to each action size.
